I was there, and quite enjoyed this show as it happened. And thanks be to outdoor venues, especially fine ones like Merriwether; I was able to hear Casey Jones while still entering.

In retrospect, though, Doug nails it. The He's Gone + jam is wheat, and the rest of it is strictly chaff.

Thanks, CM, for this new remaster. A beautiful, fully-patched delivery of a rather overrated show. This is an example playingwise why '84 is relegated to the bottom of the "year by year" GD deck.

After a really weird Casey Jones (what's with the dinosaur yowls, yo?) they go through it as routinely as doing the dishes. No jams to close out the set.

That almost-annoying, "hurried" feel a lot of '84 shows have really does make CC>R, usually a reliable one, really tough to take. If there is any part of this show worth holding onto, I think it's the He's Gone > Jam > Drums > Space midsection core, about 30 minutes of music when suddenly the band seems completely and totally dialed in. That jam out of He's Gone is really something jazzy-cool!

But then: Don't Need Love. An awkward beginning to a shrugging-the-shoulders Truckin', Bobby forgetting the lyrics. A WDD half-jam. Jerry forgetting his opening cue on Stella. The band awkwardly trying to land the opening to A&A. It just doesn't gel, folks.

Take a half hour for He's Gone and the bit surrounding it; makes for a pleasant surprise in the middle of the murk.
